The implementation of this marking methodology was to enhance student feedback and assessment.
More detailed feedback was desired by students.
There was a need to improve the timescale for marking assignments and returning feedback to students in large classes.
Positive impact for students:
Positive impact for staff:
Although there is a small time commitment in setting up the rubric, overall the time taken to mark a written assignment for a large class will be reduced.
Think carefully about the marking schedule in advance and also think carefully about the scale e.g. no introduction (0 marks), limited introduction (1 mark), comprehensive introduction (2 marks).
Defining the marking schedule.
Learning how to set up rubrics in Advanced Grading on Myplace.
No scalability issues.
This method of marking will provide enhanced feedback to students in a variety of types of assignment submitted through MyPlace. At the same time it will enable assignments from large classes to be marked efficiently.
